Use SCA to Simplify the Development and Delivery of Service-Based Applications


Service Component Architecture (SCA) is a new programming model that enables developers to build distributed applications more efficiently and effectively than previous technologies. In Understanding SCA (Service Component Architecture), two leading experts offer the first complete and independent guide to SCA. Drawing on extensive experience both developing the SCA standards and implementing large-scale SCA applications, Jim Marino and Michael Rowley provide an insider's perspective for developers and technical managers tasked with architecting and implementing enterprise systems. Rather than simply providing a technology overview, the authors draw on their practical experiences with SCA, explaining

  • The full history behind SCA
  • How SCA fits with other enterprise technologies such as JEE, .NET, Web Services, and BPEL
  • All the major SCA concepts including composition, policy, wires, and bindings
  • Best practices for designing SCA applications
  • Using SCA with Web Services, Message-Oriented Middleware, BPEL, JPA, and Servlets

Understanding SCA (Service Component Architecture) provides the background necessary to make informed decisions about when and how to best use SCA to build enterprise applications.


Book News Annotation:

This guide to Service Component Architecture aids developers, architects, analysts, and technical managers in architecting and implementing enterprise systems. Instead of only providing a tutorial, the authors, who have been involved with SCA since its inception, describe the history of the programming model and the reasoning behind decisions made during its development. Focusing on the aspects of SCA that relate to applications using Java, they discuss how it fits with other enterprise technologies such as .NET, Web Services, and BPEL; service-based development and conversational interactions using Java; its major concepts including composition, policy, wires, and bindings; best practices for application design; and using SCA with JPA (Java Persistence API), servlets, and JSPs. Marino advises clients on technology issues such as product planning, system architecture, and implementation. Rowley is involved in the development of SCA and has contributed to specifications published as part of the Open Service Oriented Architecture collaboration.

About the Author

Jim Marino, Ph.D., is Principal at Metaform Systems, where he provides strategic planning, architecture assistance, and training to clients worldwide. Jim is also one of the architects of the Fabric3 SCA runtime. Prior to joining Metaform Systems, Jim was Director of Technology at BEA Systems, where he was involved with the development of Service Component Architecture from its inception.


Michael Rowley, Ph.D., is the CTO of Active Endpoints, Inc. He has been involved in the development of SCA from early in its development and has contributed to 12 of the 15 SCA specifications that were published as part of the Open Service- Oriented Architecture (OSOA) collaboration. He was also an original member of the Open Component Service Architecture (OpenCSA) steering committee, which is the OASIS steering committee that oversees the work of the various SCA technical committees. Before joining Active Endpoints, he was a Director of Technology at BEA Systems where, in addition to working on SCA, he also helped develop the BPELJ extension to BPEL and was involved in the early development of BEA’s event processing and service bus products. Michael received his Ph.D. in computer science from UCLA in 1994.
